The Trophy

As we are focusing on Sustainability at NordCham, for this year's award trophies, we asked one of our business partners, Filtra, Inc., to help us realize the design that we envisioned to befitting the occasion and focus. 

 

We wanted a simple, modern, and sustainable trophy, and we believe we have achieved this through the materials and design.

 

The materials we have chosen to make use of are ash, walnut, beech, and oak reclaimed off-cuts. 

 

The design shows the diversity of companies and organizations through the different heights and sizes of the cuts.
